What a start! Borough market, voted visitor’s top attraction in London. Tastes and smells from the finest food producers in the land. Leave some room for lunch!
Then a rare treat, your chance to enjoy The City with not a suit in sight! We’ll glide around the empty streets past monuments and imposing architecture. Are the streets paved with gold?
Leaving the city we’ll take to the canal paths and head to an urban zoo. Animals, flowers and with a superb Italian cafe attached.
Broadway market beckons. A trendy’s hang out adds to a brilliant vibe. Food, fashion, crafts and buskers. You could stay here all day!
Another relaxing canal ride takes us through Docklands. Marvel at the towers above you before you descend under the Thames. Bet you didn’t even know there was a foot tunnel!
Greenwich market provides a perfect balance to your day with its array of arts and crafts. Plus you won’t have far to carry back anything you buy!
We’ll ride back along the river and cycle paths to London Bridge.
